The day Baltimore planned to lay Freddie Gray to rest, the city went up in smoke.

Riots have broken out throughout Baltimore less than three weeks after a 25-year-old man died in police custody.

What started as peaceful protests days ago have turned violent, with stores being looted, rocks being thrown at police and buildings and cars set on fire.

Here’s what we know happened on Monday leading up to the violence:
